A Puritan Prayer

O God of the highest heaven,
   Occupy the throne of my heart,
   Take full possession and reign supreme,
   Lay low every rebel lust,
   Let no vile passion resist thy holy war;
Manifest Thy mighty power
   And make me Thine forever.
Thou art worthy to be  
   Praised with my every breath,
   Loved with every faculty of soul,
   Served with my every act of life.
O help me then to walk worthy of Thy love.
